I love cassoulet and have made it many times...duck fat, duck legs, pork, confited, homemade lamb sausage,etc.

I am losing my patience for it however and the recent thread on the excellent version at Hammersley's Bistro and the tweets that Rendezvous in Cambridge is now serving it raise the question:

who is serving it and how good is it? How much does it cost and is it worth it?

even though it's 50 degrees out, it will get colder.......

    Posted about Hammersley's version in this http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/880617 thread. It's great. Not sure of the exact cost, but I'm sure its not cheap, worth it though.

        Petit Robert has it for $25. I've had it there. It's good.

                Brasserie Jo has it on Thursdays. $21, according to the online menu. Pretty good, as I recall. It's been a couple of years since I've had it.
